Rib-eye steak: Butter is better

  1. All-natural rib-eye. Sauteed with lightly crushed garlic & whole rosemary sprigs. Basted with butter.
  2. Organic baby carrots. Roasted. Caramelized with butter and maple syrup.
  3. Organic potatoes. Minced garlic, rosemary, olive oil & butter.

After eating a lot of vegetarian dishes the past few weeks, I thought I’d reintroduce some steak into my life.

It’s the first time I ever “finished” off a steak with butter in the pan. It definitely brings out some extra flavor from the meat. I suggest you give it a try, if you feel like you’re not getting enough fat in your diet. Just throw some butter into the pan during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Then continuously spoon the melted butter on top of the steak to baste it.

Glutton edition

On Monday, Annie and I cooked dinner while watching It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. But before we could cook, she had to work on some nerd stuff and I had to eat slightly healthy things:

Now that we got that out the way…

  • Shrimp with cocktail sauce from Whole Foods. I ate it while cooking dinner, forgetting for the thousandth time that Annie doesn’t like shrimp (Who doesn’t like shrimp?! Nobody, that’s who.)
  • All natural rib-eye steak (lots of marbling!), pan-fried with butter and chopped garlic, seasoned with truffle salt & black pepper
  • Sauteed & broiled organic russet potatoes with extra virgin olive oil, butter, rosemary, garlic, Lawry’s seasoning salt and black pepper
  • Sauteed organic California-grown green beans, wrapped in prosciutto
  • Sauteed organic asparagus, wrapped in bacon
  • 337 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

In my defense

As you can see above, I ate sliced apples, a protein+fiber bar and a protein+antioxidant drink before cooking. What you don’t see, is that Annie had two espresso chocolate chip cookies and garlic+herb baked veggie chips before dinner. [Brushes dirt off his shoulder.]
